Junk Air Wood Automaton Model Kit
Our intrepid aviator heads for the heavens in his home-built airship, ready for adventure!
The compressed wood-fiber pieces slot together without glue or tools required. Most of the main body pieces are printed on both sides in full color. The individual parts are shipped loose (bagged) so unlike our other model kits you do not need to push them out of a backing board. Assembly is straightforward and easy to understand with the provided illustrated parts sheet and instructions.
Completed model size: 18 x 16 x 10 in
Recommended Age: 12+
Notes from Alex;
This one is also much larger than it looks in the photos. We did assemble the sample in one shot; it took about two hours. As with the other kits, the instructions are clear and the parts are accurately labeled. Should you accidentally put something in backwards, it's relatively easy to correct (not that I'd ever make such a mistake, of course!)
When the handle is turned the bathtub rocks back and forth, the wings flap, the umbrella and propellers move, and the tub legs kick in and out. The size makes it a great display piece, and it would look fantastic in a child's room (safely out of reach of inquisitive fingers, of course).
